Bettors get mixed bag at TUF 8 Finale

Steve Cofield

If you like playing exclusively chalk, The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale was not kind to you. The underdogs delivered in a big way especially in the two finales where Efrain Escudero (+260) and Ryan Bader (+190) won. The final tally had the underdogs outpacing the favorites 6-4. If you bet $100 on every underdog you cashed $446.80. In contrast, if you bet to win $100 on every favorite you were destroyed losing $695.

The heaviest one-sided betting came on Vinny Magalhaes and Jason MacDonald, both losers and Junie Browning, an easy winner. The Yahoo MMA Experts Blog was 2-1 and +60 with its highlighted picks for the TUF 8 Finale but just 5-5 overall. We completely whiffed on the picks video going 0-3!
